Jay Cato went 7.84/0.0 and 5.33m PV today, but false-started in the Finals of the 110h after winning his heats in low-mid 14s. The LJ is 1cm off his indoor PR and 18cm up on his outdoor mark. previous PVs were 5.30 indoor and 5.26 outdoor. His 60h marks is 7.83/1025 pts, while his outdoor hurdles are 14.03/979, so I keep expecting him to shave that 110h down to the 13s; it takes 13.61 to hit 1025 points.

No weight events for Cato, but his teammate has now hit 20m SP for a surprise 3rd (and 3 cm from 2nd) at Indoor and this week he threw 61m for the Discus, so maybe the throws will get better since the coaching appears to be there.

And, his (red-shirt) freshman Deca teammate just hit 62.93m/206-5 in the Jav to increase his PR by about 10m and his Deca points by 150.

This has been a good year for Cato so far. His current sum of PBs is close to 8,200 points and he improved this year by close to 250 points. I expect him to improve his JT by at least 5-6 meters soon. If so, he is likely to give Beach a close fight behind Lazas, Nixon and Taiwo (if healthy). His strong suit is the jumps as he is consistent 7.70+ and 5.20+ jumper. His throws are still the weak point but even their he is not as horrible as he used to be after a large improvement in the DT earlier this season.

Re the 110h - when I was doing my heptathlon to decathlon score "project" I looked into the 60h score vs. 110h scores. Most decathletes have much higher score in the 60h than the 110h, while the same is not true for the 60 vs.100. I assume that the reason is that the safer Technic that decathletes use causes them to lose a lot of time when they pass more hurdles in the 110h. Even Eaton has a score of 25 points higher in the 60h than the 110h hurdles while most other decathletes will tend to lose more. There is no easy way to translate 60h times to 110h (which is why I decided not to do this conversion). Cato already ran the 110h (at least) four times this season all in the low 14 range. I am not sure that this is the place to look for large improvement for Cato (I think than beside the throws the 1500 is his best chance for large improvement).

To sum - yet another prospect for the "A" but will need to improve further if he is to challenge Lazas and Nixon.

Just noticed that Cato is the second best jumper of all active American decathletes. Below is a list of the six best jumpers based on their sum of PBs in the three jumping events:
1. Eaton.....3,030
2. Cato......2,950
3. Hardee...2,893
4. Taiwo....2,846
5. Lazas.....2,799
- Beach.....2,799

Cato said early yesterday morning that he wasn't going to do any decathlons this year. Then let me give you the e-mail message I got.

<<He then went to the vault and won with a PR at 5.33m (17'5.75"). He had the bar raised to 5.40m and missed twice. He stood at the head of the runway for his third try holding his pole and lightly rocking back and forth waiting for the right moment to start his run up. As he rocked back he suddenly crumpled backwards to the ground and started screaming in pain. This continued for well over a minute. I called on the mike for a trainer or medical assistance to go to the PV runway immediately to assist him. When help arrived he was still twisting and screaming. After about five minutes his lower leg had been wrapped in a compression bandage and with assistance he was put on a large golf cart and transported to an ambulance near the rear entry to our track. Most observers seemed to think he had torn or ruptured his achilles tendon. His collapse was rather strange considering that it appeared he wasn't putting any significant strain on his leg with the gentle rocking motion. No confirmation yet on the exact nature of the injury, but the outlook certainly does not look good for this versatile young athlete. >>

ok, so the Cato injury was clarified on another thread, but I'll add part of that quote from "spy" here too:

<<a snap was heard and Cato immediately dropped to the ground screaming in pain. It was a freak accident which was diagnosed as a ruptured Achilles. Cato appeared later at the stadium in a walking boot, and said that plans were for surgery either on Sunday or Monday.>>

Nevertheless, no one has specified which of Sime's races were on the 220 Straight (What's that correction, 0.3?) and which Curve. I know the 20-flat was on a Straightaway, as was the LH WR.

For some reason Sime, for all his athleticism, simply did not seem to be able to quite handle the 200t.
I thought Sime's 200t PB was 20.9 but maybe that was in '60. He ran several decent 200t in France in '57. Of course, in '56 he ran about 5 or 6 times sub 20.4 in the 220 straight.


So the Sime WR for the 220 straight was 20flat or 20.1 ?.. I think his WR was with almost no wind too, a remarkable fact for a 220 straight WR, where one would expect to harness a maximal wind advantage.

Comparing anything Beach has done with Sime at 200m is somewhat comical. Nevertheless I would like to see Beach take his 400m PR a little more seriously. Something tells me there is another full second hiding in there.

Payton Jordan Invitational is today, Sunday. Eaton is entered in 5-6 events (incl. 100 & HH), but reports here have been he only intends to throw Discus and Pole Vault. Same as last year, only vaulting and tossing Jav: PR ~60m. That was his first real breakthrough in the Weights, continued this year w/ Jav >66m and SP > 15 m. We're all hoping to see today's Discus pushing 50m; and in the PV, sky's the limit, so to speak.

One interesting thing Beach has told me is that he thinks he's the fastest sprinter at Duke - this is somewhat more a reflection of us not having very good sprinters or football players with sprint speed.

What a disappointment at Stanford: Eaton not only passed on the Discus altogether, but elected to pass 5.05, then miss 5.20, ending up w/ 4.90, nearly 16 inches below PR (5.30). While it made a certain sense in the context of the competition, it's perplexing in terms of the apparent "controlled workout" approach of these selective competitions.

Finals
1 Levi Keller Club Northwest 5.30m 17-04.50
4.45 4.60 4.75 4.90 5.05 5.20 5.30 5.50
P P P P P XXO XO XXX
2 Kasey Burlingham Azpva 5.20m 17-00.75
4.45 4.60 4.75 4.90 5.05 5.20 5.30
P P P XO O O XXX
3 Ashton Eaton Nike Otc Elite 4.90m 16-00.75
4.45 4.60 4.75 4.90 5.05 5.20
P P P XO P XXX

Makesya wonder if something came up, or maybe it was the schedule.

In Arkansas Team Invitational Lazas won the decathlon with a mediocre 7,537. None of Lazas's results were especially good as he was below par for the entire 10 events.
Miller Moss was leading the competition until the JT. In the process he broke two PBs 14.85 SP and 5.00 PV.
Unfortunately, he had a disaster in the JT (35.84!) and did not finish the 1500.

Well, it started out being a good day for the US decathlon guys: 7.84/0.0 for Cato, then Cato hit 5.33 but then he snaps Achilles Tendon and Ziemek hurt, then Eaton skips and then vaults 4.90, then Lazas hits only 7500.

As April and the relay season are over it is a good time to summarize the situation of young American decathletes. In order to “qualify” for the list below a decathlete needs to:
1. Born after Eaton (25.01.88)
2. Have sum of PBs of more than 8,000 points.
I used both indoor and outdoor marks for the LJ, SP, HJ and PV in order to calculate the sum of PBs.
For each athlete I present the name (year of birth), sum of PBs (improvement in 2013), decathlon best and heptathlon best.
1. Taiwo.....(90) 8471 (239) 7742 6156
2. Beach.....(90) 8447 (134) 8084 6138
3. Moss.......(88) 8396 (59)..7996 5968
4. Nixon......(93) 8362 (59)..7892 6232
5. Lazas......(90) 8301 (107)..7955 6175
6. Horn.......(90) 8288 (0)....7954 5971
7. Murphy....(90) 8264 (15)....8067 5748
8. Cato.......(90) 8191 (242)...7616 6165
9. Scantling..(93) 8174 (619)...7824 6017
10. Brey......(88) 8119 (0)......7932 5677
knocking on the door: Keys 7982 (61) and Prentice 7901 (224)

Few remarks:
Taiwo - large part of his improvement this season is related to his 2.25 HJ. His second best jump is only 2.16 (also this season).
Beach - His marks include the 3:59.13 that he ran in a separate day. His second best is only 4:07.85
Nixon - did not compete outdoor this season
Cato - is out for the season

I always look forward to olorin's updates... One other "young" guy I just had nudging over 8000 on a PB sum basis is Wesley Bray (born April 11, 1988). He scored 7932 at the Texas Relays last year, and adding a few extra PB's gets him to 8050, I believe. I remember seeing him in one meet this year but had a DNF in the 1500.

My gut tells me that Gunnar Nixon will be in Moscow this summer, being one of the younger ones and more likely on the steeper part of the improvement curve... and last I heard he was in full training by home in Oklahoma... but no sign of him yet outdoors as olorin mentions.

Ziemek (who might also be hurt - only one comment about him and his shoulder and withdrawing after one attempt) has also made big strides this year (5th Hept Indoor, 10.77 in his first outing, 5.40 PV, ). His first outside chance is the 2015 WCs and then the OGs. He has a relatively mediocre 400 and also 110h compared to his 10.77, which is better than Cato's 100 and Cato has a 47 to 51 lead (IIRC) in the 400.

The Wisconsin head coach (Nuttycomb) was himself a decathlete and he seems to have an eye for guys that might do well and to bring them along well. They now have a really good throws coach (Block was a surprise 3rd inthe SP at 20.00m and just hit 200'/61m in the DT) and that should eventually translate into improving throw s scores.

It is interesting to see which schools now consistently have good multi athletes -- Georgia, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Oregon, Kansas State(?), ... [can others fill out more?]

Have to admit that this is the first time I came across his name :oops: thanks for the correction. I will add him to the table.

Zeimek has a sum of PBs of 7793 and this year he improved by 365 points (second behind Scantling). If he will compete this season I think that he has a good chance to increase his sum of PBs above 8,000.

olorin, your list got me searching, so here's a few more USA guys born after Eaton with sum of PB's over 8000...

Jack Szmanda (Mar 1990) PB's add to 8064 according to all-athletics, 0 increase so far this year after a poor showing at Mt. SAC, with bests of 7862/5656.

I believe 2011 NCAA Champ, Michael Morrison (Mar 1988), is attempting a comeback, or so this/he says... http://trackmike.wordpress.com/about/
Looks like he's back in the US now after training in Europe. His best scores are 8118/5872. I think he was injured last year, so almost all his PB's came in 2011, adding up to 8218?

Another one might be Michael Ayers (Nov 1988), a graduate of Georgia, but I'm not sure if he's competing anymore?

Piece on Cato:

After setting a PR in the pole vault by clearing 17 feet, 5 3/4 inches -- the best mark in the Big Ten this spring and the second-best outdoor clearance in school history -- Cato missed twice at 17-8 1/2.

"I was getting ready to take my last jump and I was a little tired and fatigued,'' said Cato, adding that his upper body still felt strong and "there was nothing hurting in my lower body.''

Clapping his hands to get the crowd engaged, he admitted, "I was really hyped, pumped up.''But as he began to push off with his right foot to start running, Cato said, "I heard a pop; probably the equivalent of a bigger branch breaking off. Two or three other people heard it, too.''

At first, he thought, "Oh, man, my shoe broke.'' He looked down and saw that his shoe was still intact.

"Then I felt my lower calf roll up,'' he said. "That's what they all talk about when it snaps -- it rolls up. I knew then that it was my Achilles. "I went to the ground but there wasn't much pain. It felt like a 4 on the pain scale. There was a little discomfort but mostly it was just a big, big blow to my heart.''

gktrack -
Thanks for the corrections.
Re Szmanda - you are right, I had a mistake in one of his PBs. Since he is in 11th place lets treat my list as top ten.
Re Morris & Ayers - I thought that both are now retire. According to all-athletics they compete only once in 2013. If they will compete more regularly I will add them to the list in the next update.

Ziemek is listed for the 110h, LJ and PV at the Wisconsin Open, this Saturday, so it must not have been much wrong for him. Cato had surgery today on his Achilles. Unfortunately, the meet is going to have some light rain and highs in the mid-60s (just upgraded from the 50s!) -- not the great weather of last year.

Ziemek did not vault but ran 15.04/0.1 in the 110h; a PR by 0.40, and which gives him a PR total of 8004 points (using indoor and outdoor marks).

Since we are weighing in with hearsay re Gunnar Nixon, an Arkansas insider told me Nixon's academic problems resulted from never attending and, consequently flunking, a class in which a coach enrolled him without his knowledge....
Dunno how that can happen.. :?

In Pack 12 conference Taiwo is leading Dakota Keys by almost 200 points. Oddly, is worse performances so far are in his strong suit the jumps (7.18 & 2.09) when he lost probably more than 200 points on his best form.

1 Taiwo, Jeremy.......4200...10.95 7.18m 13.57m 2.09m 48.56

Taiwo PB in the decathlon is 7,742 (700 less than his sum of PBs!). Lately, he had problems with his DT and JT (his PBs are 42 & 53 wereas his SBs are 37.5 & 42.5). Will need to improve if he is to challenge in the NCAA

Ziemek did not vault but ran 15.04/0.1 in the 110h; a PR by 0.40, and which gives him a PR total of 8004 points (using indoor and outdoor marks).


I have the following marks as Ziemek's PB:
10.77, 722, 13.11, 206, 50.8, 15.04, 44.45, 540, 55.83, 5:19.93 (sum 7850)
Can you please tell me if I got one (or more) of his PBs wrong (wouldn't be the first time)

Based on his 2:48 1000 in a Hept and the fact that he does not do that off of great 400 speed I have him as about 5:00; I was realized in that 8004 I had used a filled in from an estimate (50) of what he might do and had not gotten in his actual 400 PR (51.52). So, even using a 5:00 1500 it only comes to 7035. Given that he killed his 100 PR with that 10.77, I think he will probably improve that 400. He also has the potential to take his LJ and 110h times down based on that 10.77 speed and the ability to take speed down the PV runway (witness the rapid improvement to 5.40), although he already just went from 15.44 to 15.04 in the 110h.

Johannes Hock , FR, Texas, had a good score this last Fri/Sat of 8293, setting Big 12 record.

He can throw too! 15.40/53.85/63.63

Anyone know anything about him? Is he one of those 25 yo Swedes?

Is he going to get CR?

He is a German who looks to have had one year off out of high school, where they graduate a year older than the US. Thus, about a junior or red-shirt sophomore by US standards.

Decent start for Taiwo in Day 2... 14.74 in the 110H and 40.75/133-8 in the discus, but will need to perform relatively well over the last 3 events to break 8000 points
Add: Still near 8000 pace after 8 events... within a few inches of his PR in the PV, going 4.80/15-9. I have no idea what kinda 1500m shape he's in though, or how hard he'll run it with likely a nice lead in the competition at that point?
After 9 events: well, Taiwo's lost his lead... only 48.34/158-7 for Taiwo's JT, while Keys ties PR in PV, then PR's by 2.53 meters in his JT (66.81/219-02), that's 4 PR's this meet for Keys. It's now Keys over Taiwo, 7228 to 7174, into the 1500 where Taiwo is better on paper.

Great finish in Pac12 Multis... Keys with another PR in the 1500 scores 8001. Taiwo in second with a fine 4:18.23, scoring 7998.

Keys must be the first to make 8000 with a 51 second 400m and a 117 DT. The 400m is hard to figure, since he was a good 300H in high school. Probably just doesn't have the feel of it yet.

At the Big Ten Indoor the last time that the women were in Madison they had a tie in the Pent. As I recall the Competition Handbook called for breaking the tie by a comparison of the head-to-head placing (i.e., who had the best in at least three of the five events).
